Lecture by Yuri Shevchuk, as part of Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Ukrainian Cinema since Independence

The Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies, the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine, the Canadian Foundation for Ukrainian Studies, and the Ukrainian Film Club, Columbia University proudly present:

Yuri Shevchuk, lecturer of Ukrainian language and culture and director of the Ukrainian Film Club at Columbia University. 

"Soviet Film and Stalin's War of Peasants, 1920-1930"

This lecture by Professor Shevchuk explores the destruction of independent peasantry by the Bolshevik regime, orchestrated with an unparalleled efficiency both in terms of the actual physical elimination of millions branded kulaks and the moral justification of the mass murder to the largely acquiescing public opinion within the Soviet Union and abroad. The lecture discusses the role Soviet film played in the preparation and execution of one of the greatest mass murders of European civil population whose scale and consequences are still to be fully appreciated. The lecture presentation is based on the research of a wide body of documents and motion pictures of the period and is richly illustrated with film clips.
